How do I turn 83 1/3 % into a fraction? I already have this:
83 and 1/3 divided by 100. I don't know what to do after that.
So that you could multiply the fraction more easily and quicker. It would be just consist of more steps to multiply a fraction with a mixed fraction thats why it is changed to a top heavy fraction.
$\displaystyle \frac{250}{3}\times\frac{1}{100} = \frac{250 \times 1}{3 \times 100} = \frac{250}{300} = \frac{5}{6}$ < Completed in 4 Steps
$\displaystyle 83 \frac13 \times \frac{1}{100} = \left(\frac{83}{1} \times \frac{1}{100}\right) + \left( \frac{1}{3} \times \frac{1}{100}\right) = \left(\frac{83}{100}\right) + \left(\frac{1}{300}\right) = $ $\displaystyle \left(\frac{249}{300}\right) + \left(\frac{1}{300}\right) = \frac{250}{300} = \frac{5}{6}$ <Completed in 6 steps
Hence it is easier to multiply fraction by converting a mixed fraction to a top heavy fraction as it can be completed in less steps.
